DIY camping modified car

If you want to try a quick trip, many people will want to have their own "secret base", that is, a vehicle in which they can stay overnight.

If you just want to build a bed, you can do it with simple DIY.

This article will explain to you a cheap and simple DIY modification method. The article will also introduce the key points of modification and convenient equipment.

Simple DIY camping modifications

Although this also depends on the level of sophistication, if it is just a simple bed set, it is easier for novice DIYers to master, and if you make good use of your own vehicle for DIY, it only costs materials.

The most important thing before DIY is to confirm the purpose. If it is "just for sleeping" and there are no other requirements, as long as there is a space to lie down.

But if you want to "rest comfortably in the car", you need to confirm whether there is room for your head when sitting on the bed and whether it will hit the roof of the car.

Use DIY to turn Every Wagon into a camping modified vehicle

The author will introduce the DIY bed set from Every Wagon Camping Modified Car.

By the way, Every is a very popular lightweight camper van prototype. Its roof is high, so as long as the passenger seat is tilted down, even an adult man can sleep with his legs stretched out.

The dimensions of the cabin are 1385mm wide x 1820/1910mm deep x 1240mm high.

This is enough to create a simple in-car camping conversion for one adult.

This time I will introduce to you how to assemble a multi-functional telescopic rod bed that is cheap in materials and easy to process.

First, tilt the back seat to ensure space, then use the multi-functional telescopic rod as the frame of the bed set, and finally adjust the height difference.

Place plywood on top and cover with soft cushions. It’s easier to place cushions directly on top of the dump seat.

If you are concerned about the height difference of the seat, you can roll up the blanket and adjust the level.

The multifunctional telescopic pole is a cheap and easy-to-use modification prop.

This creates a space where an adult can rest comfortably. It's the same width as a single king-size bed and offers great comfort.

Because the frame uses multi-functional telescopic rods, it can not only reduce weight but also create a stable sleeping space. After setting up the bed frame, the bottom of the bed can also be used as a storage space.

This example is to convert the car cabin into a bed. You can also choose to only set up a bed frame on one side and reserve some seats according to the purpose.

You can also use your usual quilt or cushion to lay it on top to save money.

Summary: Materials used and costs

Sleeping in the car DIY floor assembly

The actual modification materials and costs are as follows.


Soft cushion 2,700 yen

Multifunctional telescopic pole material 9216 yen (telescoping pole 1560cm, adapter 150 yen x 24 pieces)

Synthetic board 6,000 yen (2 pieces)

This time we introduce a cheap DIY modification method for readers who want to reduce initial costs to try.

There is also an easier way to place cushions directly on the tilt seat. If you are concerned about the height difference of the seat, you can also roll up the blanket to solve this problem.

Finally, I would like to remind you that DIY is a personal responsibility. Everyone must first confirm what can be changed and what cannot be changed before making modifications.
